Get someone to run food to you and your spouse.  We used our “cocktail hour” to take care of some pictures, but neither of us had eaten much for breakfast, because…yeah.  Nerves.

And there was definitely one particular appetizer that we wanted…and apparently everyone else did, too.

Really try to get rest the week before the wedding. I looked so tired in all of my wedding pictures because I was. The honeymoon wasn’t that great either because we were both so tired.

Dont get worried or upset if things dont happen the way you planned for them to go. Just shrug it off and remember what the days about and have a good time. if youre freaking out about something, you guests will latch onto that and not have a great time. Sh*t happens and it will happen for the rest of our lives. Smile and move on. 

Also, eat some food while getting ready. You wont be hungry all day and then all of a sudden, you’re  STARVING during the ceremony!
